My Grandmother An Armenian-Turkish Memoir

Synopsis

My Grandmother An Armenian-Turkish Memoir by Fethiye Cetin

As a child in Turkey, Fethiye Cetin knew her grandmother as a happy and well respected Muslim housewife. Decades later, her grandmother revealed the truth: she was by birth a Christian Armenian, and most of the men in the village where she grew up were slaughtered in 1915. In this heartwrenching memoir, Cetin tells a powerful story that breaks the silence surrounding the Armenian genocide.

This is a remarkable book. Sorcha Hamilton, Irish Times;

A compelling and beautifully written account of family stories and secrets, and a heartfelt call to peace and harmony. Elif Shafak.
